GILBERT, AZ – It is no surprise for a bride to shed a few tears on her wedding day.

But for Angela Davito it was not overcome by the emotion of the occasion – but the effects of police pepper spray.

The 28-year-old was arrested at her reception after kicking a police officer as she celebrated her wedding in Gilbert, Arizona. She was later charged with assault.

Officers had been called when a fight broke out at the reception and were forced to use pepper spray to control the guests.

Police spokesman Hugh White said officers had to restrain Mrs Davito after she became disorderly at the suburban home where her reception was held.

Officers responding to a call found a large brawl in the backyard of the home and told everyone to stop fighting.

But the commotion continued, and police officers pepper-sprayed the crowd.

Mr White said people then got angry and aggressive toward the officers and that Davito charged a partygoer.

He said Davito then kicked an officer and was arrested on charges of assault and obstructing governmental operations.

Several attendees were treated for pepper spray exposure by the Gilbert Fire Department.
